Ste. Chapelle 2007 Chateau Series Soft Red Alcohol: 10.5% by volume
In recent years, Soft Red has become one of our most popular wines. Lusciously fruity, it is balanced with crisp acidity to please both novice and seasoned wine drinkers. 2006 was an outstanding vintage in which all our fruit ripened before winter weather arrived. The premium red grapes we use for Soft Red were fermented on their skins to extract color and flavor before the fermentation was arrested to achieve a lower alcohol level with balanced residual sweetness.
Delicate strawberry and cherry aromas with a hint of chocolate introduce a richly textured wine with abundant fruit flavors balanced by a clean, crisp finish. A perfect red for white and red wine lovers alike. Delightful served well-chilled on its own or with fruit, cheese and light desserts. It’s also an outstanding barbecue and picnic wine.

Vertikal 2007 Riesling Mosel Vintage Notes: Due to the earliest blooming in history and a perfect summer, grapes were harvested at ideal ripeness level. The quality of the 2007 vintage is considered to be outstanding. Tasting Notes: Aromas and flavors of peaches, melon, and honeysuckle delight the palate with pleasing sweetness and acidity.
